    From what I remember there are various SeaDoo models. Some are ok for rec diving but others are only for snorkeling or playing in a pool. Only a fool would use one on a tech dive.

    Scubapro Sea Scooter text.jpg While looking for a fin (original "Sea Wing") advert in a Scubapro 1994 catalog I found this “Sea Shuttle” that was advertised briefly in the dive magazines of the time.

    My SeaShuttle works
    but the Apollo is strong and beautifully neutral, adjustable pitch prop a big bonus

    easy to modify for extra vroom vroom

    Interesting to see all the components laid out and nice to know that it was not all headed for the blue topped receptacle.

    Why on earth would those beautiful refurbished parts be headed for a cardboard recycling bin

    here's the only blue receptacle those beautiful refurbished modified parts headed to

    More recent generations seem to have the view that old gear (i.e. from before their time) must be obsolescent and needs to be thrown out, hence my comment was intended to be somewhat ironic. When I started diving this gear was yet to be invented and I remember when the first scooters arrived, however few people could afford to buy them.
